    1. ([PACLINTO])An Invitation to Join a Great Group!
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! By now I’m sure everyone has heard the sad news Rootsweb Mailing Lists will be disabled March 2, 2020. All lists will be archived for future researchers. Today I wanted to extend an Invitation to join our nearly 800 members strong Facebook group Pennsylvania Dutch Life. Debra Orner and I decided to welcome all of the list users to come over and join us! We discuss a little bit of everything. PA Dutch culture and heritage, area history, announcements of local events, and genealogical topics. Below is the link. https://www.facebook.com/groups/107084541429/?epa=SEARCH_BOX All we ask is your Facebook profile have a face picture. Hope to see you soon! Rick B PADL Group Owner and Admin

    3. PAClinton can have a new moderator if need be, I am willing to give it up, but I no longer have a working password, during one of the updates it became lost and have not been able to recover it. When I request to change it no emal comes back from the request.

The marriage was announced by Jessie's parents Mr. & Mrs. Isaac R. MCNEEL and took place on Thursday, August 20th 1908 in Juniata, PA. The invitation notes that the couple will be home after September 5th at 524 Eighth Avenue.

    1. ([PACLINTO]) Schürch Reunion - July 27-29, 2018 - Lewisburg PA
    2. Justin Houser
    3. Many folks in Clinton County are descended from the Swiss Schürch Family. (The name often became Shirk in the USA.) In addition to the descendants of George Wesley Shirk (1866-1953) and Anna Maude Beidler (1872-1973) of Shirk Hollow in Woodward Township, everyone here who can trace back to the Houser family of Houserville and the Leathers family of Bald Eagle Valley is a Schürch descendant, because Jacob and Barbara (Shirk) Houser were the founders of Houserville and Jacob and Mary (Shirk) Leathers were the ancestors of the Leathers family in Centre County. This includes a lot of families in the area, including Coble, Aikey, Holderman/Halderman, Cronemiller, Neff, Wirtz/Wertz, and many others. I wanted to let everyone know that our Schürch Reunion (held every two years between the USA and Canada) will be held relatively locally this time, in Lewisburg, PA this July 27-29, with bus tours of significant family history sites, including in the Howard and Houserville areas in Centre County, with a picnic lunch at Bald Eagle State Park. Distant relatives from Canada and Switzerland will be joining us, and over 100 people are registered to come already. It would be great to meet many other distant relatives! Information on how to register for the reunion is at this link. https://www.schurchfamilyassociation.net/reunions Justin

    1. [PACLINTO] William B Swartz and poss father Abraham Swartz
    2. Connie Oberholser
    3. HI all, First of all thanks to many of you who helped me over the years to prove out some of my Swarts line of Jersey Shore and Howard. I have worked for about 17 yrs now on the William Swarts z 1753-1825 of Mifflin Twp, Jersey Shore. I have come to my conclusions about his service in the Rev. War as a Hessian from Hesse Cassel. Thus have narrowed down where he was from and some places he fought. He was on the Triton when it was captured and is also listed as a Sergeant Major in Daniel Krebs book, A Generous and Merciful Enemy. I got to meet him this past summer too. I also concluded he brought Mariah with him as to the listing of an older son, Abraham in a pre 1790 tax list where he had two horses and William own only land. He was likely born in German States too. Also in the Tiadaghton Tales William is listed as the Old Revolutionary. He may have been wounded as Atty. Lawshe allows the family to carry his land payment debt thru his son Jacob's death 25 yrs after Williams death. Jacob, one of the older sons, lives on the homestead and never marries, so he may have also been handicapped in some way. (And a reason why Lawshe doesn't hold him responsible for his father's debt). There are ten children and 9 listed in his Will leaving room for an Abraham who would have died before his fathers will 1825 or went west or dies before 1800 census. My writing today is to see if anyone has ANY info on an Abraham Swarts who was in Mifflin Twp about 1790 but isn't there in 1800. He also isn't in Williams will. But head count would allow for an older son in the 1790 census which could most likely be Abraham. He owned two horses and no land so would be counted in his fathers census count two years later in 1790. AND also wish to see if there are any other Swarts family members unaccounted for who may be children of an Abraham or Samuel b before 1815. I found a WILLIAM B SWARTS born in Mifflin Township April 1799. He moves about or before 1820 to Ohio. There he marries two Moser Mosure women with whom his children are born, Margaret and Elizabeth who are not established as sisters; and has two other wives with no offspring. The one Moser is from York Co and is in Ohio with her parents in 1820. Have been hoping to find an attachment of William B Swartz to my William Swarts line. William Jr 1793-1838 is well established with Priscilla Price (Ralph Price marries William Jr's Sister Sarah Swarts.) I have had contact with some trees and they have in error connected Mariah Rosenkrans with my whole line of William via the Rosenkrans /Swarts marriage of 1770 in NY State. This many people have done over the years as it is the ONLY marriage of that time with a William Swartz in America. Thus another proof of my William being b in Germany and coming as Hessian. NO immigration other than as military and no marriages here. There is a large Swartz settlement in NJ near the Rosenkrans family which does come to Mifflin Twp and one marries John Swarts son of William Sr. But I have thoroughly read all about that NY Swarts Rosenkrans marriage and they are not a match ot John's parents, William and Mariah Unknown Swartz. Also SINCE William Sr 1873-1825 IS a HESSIAN and proven, he would not have been here 7 yrs before the war having a family. A few months after Larry Owen published his book on Samuel Swarts son of William, we discovered each other and connected our trees, completing all the children of William but Abraham and this possible William B Swartz 1799-1883. I have added William B into my Sholes Swarts Oberholser and Wenger Tree if anyone finds it helpful in connecting William B. There may be someone yet in the area or on the list who knows something of William B which would help us prove a connection.

    1. [PACLINTO] why the silence?
    2. Mr Stephen.
    3. I have sent you this message earlier, but your failure to respond has prompted me to re-sending it once again. Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise and if it might offend you without your prior consent and writing through this channel. I am Mr Stephen,The Chairman, Contract Awarding committee of the ECONOMIC COMMUNITY OF WEST AFRICAN STATES ( ECOWAS)with Headquarters in Lome, Togo. I got your contact through Network on line in my search for a reliable and reputable person to handle a very confidential transaction that involves a transfer of fund to a foreign account and I decided to write you After discussing my view and your profile with my colleagues,they were very much satisfied and decided to contact you immediately for this mutual business relationship.We wish to transfer the sum of 16.5 MILLION USD into your personal bank account. This fund was a residue of the over invoiced contract bills awarded by us for the supply of hard/software,pharmaceuticals/medical items, light and heavy duty vehicles, apperals and other administrative logistics etc for the ECOMOG in Sierra-Leone and Liberia during the Peace Keeping Projects. This DEAL was deliberately hatched out and carefully protected with all the attendant lope holes sealed off.As the Chairman of CAC,I have the cooperation and mandate of the Financial Director and the Secretary of the Organization.We arranged and over invoiced the contract funds supplied by different companies from different countries during the crisis. It was our consensus to seek the assistance of a willing foreigner to provide us with the facilities to transfer this money out of West Africa. This is borne out of our belief in the non-stable and sporous political nature of this sub-region. The original contractors have been duely paid by the Banque Centrale Des Etats De L`Afrique De L`Ouest (Central Bank of the West African States)through our bankers-INTERNATIONAL BANK OF AFRICA(IBA)UNION TOGOLAISE DE BANQUE(UTB),ECO BANK,BTCI BANK LOME TOGO. This balance is suspended in the escrow accounts awaiting claims by any foreign company of our choice.We intend to pay out this fund now as the organization is winding up its activities since the aim of returning PEACE to the countries and the coast has been achieved. Based on the laws and ethics of employment,we as civil servants working under this organization, are not allowed to operate a foreign account. This is the more reason why we needed your assistance to provide an account that can sustain this fund for safe keeping and our future investment with your comprehensive advise,assistance and partnership in your country. It is however agreed,as the account owner in this deal to allow you 40% of the entire sum as compensation, 55% will be held on trust for us while 5% will be used to defray any incidental charges and cost during the course of the transaction This transaction will be successfully concluded within 14 days if you accord us your unalloyed and due cooperation. You should provide the followings; YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL ADDRESS WITH COMPLETE ADDRESS, TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS.(if available) THE NAME OF YOUR BANK,ITS ADDRESS WITH TEL,FAX AND YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER, THE COMPLETE MAILING ADDRESS OF THE BENEFICIARY WITH TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS. Upon the receipt of this information,i will forward them to the organization for ratification and subsequent payment. As with the case of all organized (sensitive)and conspired DEALS,we solicit for your unreserved confidentiality and utmost secret in this business. We hope to retire peacefully and leave a honorable business life afterwards. There are no risks involved. Thanks while i look forward to your positive reply.Please Kindly reply me back through my private E-MAIL if you are interested. sthval446119@gmail.com for more details. Thank you and remain blessed My kind regards Mr Stephen.

    1. [PACLINTO] Genealogical Society meeting -- November 14th
    2. Justin Houser
    3. Local genealogist Robert Schadt of Castanea will be the featured speaker at the Clinton County Genealogical Society's meeting on Tuesday, November 14, at 7 p.m. at the Society's usual meeting location, the LDS Church, 8 Noll Drive, Mill Hall (just off Route 64). There is no charge to attend. Schadt's presentation, "Martha McKague Comes Home," will detail his efforts to reclaim and repatriate the remains of a cousin who died in obscurity in an Oregon hospital in the 1920s. McKague's unclaimed ashes sat on a shelf in the Pacific Northwest for nearly a century until Schadt was able to locate them, claim them, and repatriate them to Pennsylvania, where he is making plans for their interment on her parents' family plot in Clinton County. The talk will highlight how Schadt's family research strategy of compiling and sharing information led to the discovery of McKague's fate and remains, and the challenges he faced in returning his relative home to her final resting place. Schadt is well-known in genealogical, historical, and community circles. With deep ancestral roots in Clinton County, he was active for decades in the Clinton County Genealogical Society Cemetery Project and compiled an extensive database of county burials. He has also served as the sexton for St. Mary's Cemetery in Lock Haven and in recent years has held several leadership roles in the Ancient Order of Hibernians.
